Exploring: The Play of Wit and Science by John Redford
This is our first exploring session on this late Henrician drama. Fight the Tediousness Monster!
The play is missing the first few pages, but what can you do.
This is the first of three plays that riff on the same material. They have annoyingly similar but different titles.
With Claire Richardson as Reason, Experience; Stephen Longstaffe as Wit; Gregory Musson as Instruction, Idleness, Science; Alex Scott Fairley as Confidence, Tediousness, Ignorancy, Riches; Nuno Meireles as Diligence, Fame; Liza Graham as Study, Honest Recreation, Favour.
The host was Robert Crighton who also read Worship.
